“Campi Flegrei, also known as the Phlegraean Fields (from Greek ??????, burning), is a large 13 kilometres (8.1 mi) wide caldera situated to the west of Naples, Italy.”
“It is a volcano capable of producing VEI 7 eruptions, as large as that of Tambora in 1815.”
“Recent inflation of the caldera centre in the vicinity of Pozzuoli may presage an eruptive event within decades.”

    I hate to say it… but Mother Nature is a real hash bitch and will always win… particularly when it come to volcanic eruptions… this is one of those “Fuck it and move” times…..

    It’s OK though, Naples is a bit of a hole.


    Every year about 60 volcanoes erupt around the globe – no big deal unless you live nearby.

    My recommendation is not to live nearby.
